Business break-in still being investigated

2016-05-05 06:00

ABOUT R100 000 worth of equipment was stolen from Nashua in Port Shepstone last Sunday and the perpetrators are still at large.

“No arrests have been made yet and investigations are ongoing,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.

There have been no other business break-ins in the Port Shepstone CBD with the same modus operandi.

Three men entered the building at about 5.30am, which immediately set off the alarm.

A security guard also notified police about suspicious activity in the premises prior to the break-in, however SAPS did not show up.

The guard then contacted SAPS again when the break-in was in progress, but they only responded two and a half hours later, after the owner of the business called to report the incident.

The break-in occurred within four minutes and the men fled in a car. Before fleeing, one of the perpetrators climbed onto a desk and ripped the alarm siren off.
